Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus, also known as Yamabushitake) is a mushroom that supports mood, general wellbeing, and overall cognition.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom Benefits
Pure Nootropics provides mushroom extract, using organic whole fruiting bodies which are rigorously tested and guaranteed pure.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom Mode of Action
As a mushroom, the primary active compounds are polysaccharides, or beta-glucans. The fruiting body of the mushroom contains the highest content of the B-glucan polysaccharides (1).
The main difference between our 8:1 Lion's Mane Mushroom extract and our 1:1 Lion's Mane Mushroom is that the 8:1 is a dual extract (water and ethanol) meant to get certain beneficial compounds out of the mushroom that are not water soluble, specifically hericenones and erinacines.
The 1:1 extract is a hot water extract that is higher in polysaccharides (than the 8:1) and is recommended for overall well-being, whereas the 8:1 is more suitable for cognitive support.
